Calling all artists, graphic designers and avid fans of interstellar crustaceans…
It’s time for the Ubuntu 23.04 (Lunar Lobster) wallpaper competition! With the upcoming release just a few short months away, we want to ensure the next release is packed with some amazing community wallpapers.
As in competitions past, we’ll be collecting submissions here on the Ubuntu Discourse via this thread. After the submission window closes, members of the community can vote on their favorite entries. The top
FIVE EIGHT submissions will be included in the Ubuntu 23.04 Lunar Lobster release image!
If you’d like to join in the fun, there are a few important rules to keep out of hot water:
